This was our first time at Rio Seco and we enjoyed the wines they were pouring. The tasting fee is waived with a purchase. The owner's daughter (forgot her name) was very informative about the wines and the winery. We enjoyed all the wines we were served and purchased four wines -- Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, We recommend you... More

Another wonderful visit to Rio Seco Winery. The Hinkle family is always so gracious, attentive, friendly and fun to visit. We got another case of our favorites and the olive oil to try. The grounds are beautiful, pleasant, quiet, and peaceful. Its always a stop for us when we're in the area.

Rio Seco is one of Paso Robles' earliest bonded wineries, and in my opinion is shows in the character and charm of the Hinkle family and of the winery itself. The property boasts beautiful views of Paso's sunny east side where you can sit on the deck and enjoy a glass of delicious Rio Seco wine. The Hinkle family treat... More

We were referred to this winery by another vineyard, and it was a great suggestion. It is one of the oldest in the area, and we were served by the owner who was delightful. Their reds were excellent, the history shared very interesting and the owner was friendly, welcoming and thoroughly enjoyable. This is a smaller, family owned and run... More

We stayed from Dec. 22-Dec. 27, 2016. We had a wonderful time! The weather was cold and rained one day which made it very festive. We stayed in one of the guest houses, very cozy and comfortable.

We had the great joy of celebrating a family wedding at Rio Seco Winery. It was just perfect! From the beautiful winery/vineyard/cottages to the gracious owners, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Excellent selection of wines for tasting (all delicious) Zinfandel's especially! On Friday night, they have a live band and GREAT BBQ in their patio area....so much fun.... More

We live within a 3 hour drive of Paso Robles, but never stopped here. This winery offers guest house stays, which are totally comfortable, off the beaten track, and offer a chance to bond with the winery cat. The owner is so friendly, and accommodations homey. I recommend exploring this area. See other recommendations of wineries to visit

Go here to have a nice chat and try some great (mostly red) wines. I travel alone so it is a huge bonus to me to find a place where the proprietors are friendly and informative. Very "family" place, even Monty the dog is part of the meet & greet!
